MIDDLETOWN — Middletown resident Amanda Dalton from Miami University’s Project Dragonfly has published an original article titled “Lessons from Kenya: Wildlife, Community, & Collaboration Create Conservation Success” in Audubon Miami Valley.
In the article, Dalton described how she traveled with Earth Expeditions to Kenya where she participated in a lion tracking project and other conservation collaborations. Audubon Miami Valley is a quarterly newsletter of Audubon Miami Valley, a local chapter of the National Audubon Society in Butler and Preble Counties, focused on birds, other wildlife and their habitats.
Dalton, director of Wild Hearts Zoological Park, is a graduate of Miami University through Project Dragonfly’s Global Field Program (GFP). As a student in the GFP, Dalton traveled to Belize, Kenya and Namibia.
The Global Field Program master’s degree and Earth Expeditions courses are designed for educators and other professionals from all disciplines and settings interested in making a difference in human and ecological communities. Applicants can be from anywhere in the United States or abroad.
